History of Whitewater Effigy Mounds Preserve and Mounds Site Preservation Efforts Throughout the State
The Whitewater Landmarks Commission is sponsoring a talk by Kurt Sampson, president-elect of the Wisconsin Archaeological Society, on the history of Whitewater's Effigy Mounds Preserve. Sampson will discuss past archaeological research on the preserve as well as research on other mound sites in Jefferson County. He will also discuss the history and documentation of the Whitewater mounds site, a brief history of mounds exploration in Jefferson County, information about the Burial Sites Protection Act, mound site preservation, and continued efforts around the state to preserve mound sites. Sampson's presentation will be accompanied by photographs and other exhibits to help the audience gain a better perspective on Whitewater's premier, archaeological site.
An educational tour of the preserve will be conducted immediately following the presentation.
We are proud to hold this event in celebration of Wisconsin Historic Preservation and Archaeology Month.
